    I want to restore my 3GS to its factory settings. When i goto restore in itunes, it says that it will restore to factory, THEN update to 5.0.1, which i do not want to do.

    How do i ONLY restore to factory settings?

    You either go to 5.0.1 or back to whatever 4.x that you have the shsh for. That's it.

    If you grab a hold of the firmware file (IPSW) from some place like RedmondPie, you just option+click the Restore button and do the restore.

    got it.

    Just backed up my SHSH with TinyUmbrella v5.01.00

    I have six different SHSH blobs now...

    ----------

    i did download the 4.0.1 ipsw file from iclarified, and tried a restore from that...

    shift then click restore.

    However, when itunes said it was verifiying with itunes/apple, i got the 3194 error code....

    error 3194 is related to your hosts file. Modify it and it should be okay.

    Oh I forgot about that stuff. Yeah, as Crystal-RX said, do a hosts mod and with the blobs for 4.0.1 you're all set.

    It would be great if it was that easy or simple.
    But its not.
    To restore to anything but the latest firmware you need something called "shsh blobs". Without that its not gonna happen.

    You have blobs for what firmware version?
    You can use tinyumbrella to save all available shsh blobs and then click "start tss server" in order to do the restore to the desired firmware version.

    Yes, you can restore to any of those firmware versions listed above.
    Download the ipsw you want from here: http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=750
    Then use TinyUmbrella start tss server while you do the restore process with itunes.
